Need contribution from geospatial specialist/cartographer from Borneo to update the map! 7 months ago

Do you need these (for me meaningless) nodes tagged with non-osm tags ADM_TYPE, HQ_NAME, PERIMETER, RSO03200_1 etc or can I delete them? (example)

Closing the gaps in the chinese highway network over 4 years ago

Firstly chinese contributors are needed! ;-) BTW: are there any sources for names and routes of Gxxx expressways other than wikipedia? Especially: is there a Yuwu Expressway, possibly part of G75?

Satellite Photos almost 5 years ago

Eğer josm kullanıyorsan onun WMS eklentiyle Landsat resimleri da kullanılabilir fakat o da fazla ayrıntılı değil (300 metre kadar) - en azından Yahoo'dan iyi. Yahoo'nun Türkideki ayrıntılı resimler maalesef sadece İstanbul, Ankara, Bursa, İzmir ve Adana'da bulunur...

Üstelik Türkiye'den kendisinden gelen kaynaklar de hiç yok! Serbest kullanımda olan .shp dosyaları, kroki, il ve ilçe sınırları v.b. bildiğim kadarıyla yok!

rivers of Gabon, Congo-Brazzaville and Cameroon almost 5 years ago

Well, you'll have to download and activate the WMS plugin in josm - then you can choose the landsat imagery. To get an overview of an area zoom out to about 5km - to map small winding streams you'll have to zoom in down to around 300m...

Have a look at the possibilities of the Landsat layer(s) in josm by right-clicking on it...

improved GPS Trails locator over 5 years ago


You have to type in the browser's address bar - at least a search box for tags would be nice...

I'd like to have something like "list nearby gpx-tracks" If the person who uploaded the track didn't tag the track in any way you're lost. You can only trace over it using potlatch (I hate this!) or get it via "Raw GPS data" when downloading in josm - there you get the data but only partly depending on the viewpoint and if there are lots of raw data you are getting crazy!...

Google doesn't index localized wiki pages over 5 years ago

After comparing osmwiki with wikipedia I see that for all languages in osmwiki the html header of the pages' source shows

xml:lang="en" lang="en"

while in wikipedia I see the languages set correctly, i.e.

xml:lang="ar" lang="ar"

in the header of arabic wikipedia. Don't know if that's the point for not being indexed by google. If I google "OpenStreetMap hat das Ziel, freie geographische Daten" from the mainpage to test german I find a link to osm - if I search "OpenStreetMap açık kaynaklı olan ve dünyanın her yerinden" to test turkish: nothing.
